If you are reading this it is because you are probably planning to buy FIFA 15 and want to know more details about the game. Our goal is to help you to know where you can buy FIFA 15, how much you will pay and for which edition you will choose.
FIFA 15 Editions
Q: How many editions there are for FIFA 15 ?
A: This year, there are only two editions for FIFA 15: the standard one and the Ultimate Team Edition (known in previous years as ‘Ultimate Edition’).
Q: What is the difference between the Standard (pre-order) and Ultimate Team edition ?
A: You can compare the two with the help of the following table which outlines the differences between both editions:
|Offers||Standard Ed.||Ultimate Team Ed.|
|FUT Gold Packs||15||40|
|adidas® All-Star Team||Yes||Yes|
|Messi FUT Loan Player||No||Yes|
|adidas® Predator Boot Bundle||No||Yes|
Q: What is the FUT Gold Packs offer ?
A: It is a code for one gold pack entitlement each week for use in FIFA Ultimate Team mode for a total of consecutive 15 consecutive weeks (Standard Edition with pre-orders) or 40 consecutive weeks (Ultimate Team Edition).
Q: When do FUT Gold Packs codes have to be redeemed by ?
A: The codes must be redeemed by October 6th, 2014 to receive all gold packs included in this offer. Late code redemption will result in forfeiture of previous weeks’ gold pack entitlement. Failure to download and/or use the gold pack in any given week will result in forfeiture of that week’s gold pack offering. Each gold pack weekly offer is valid for 7 days and must be redeemed within that time period. The code to redeem the gold packs codes expires January 26th, 2015 (Standard Edition) or July 20th, 2015 (Ultimate Team Edition).
Q: What is included inside each gold pack ?
A: The packs included in this offer are the regular gold packs. Each one contains a mix of 12 items, including players and consumables, at least 10 Gold with 1 rare. Usually, the price of these packs are 5,000 coins or 100 FIFA Points.
Q: Besides FUT Gold packs, what are the other offers ?
A: Here are the five other offers:
- Adidas® All-Star Team
It is one of the teams in the Rest of the World section. It gives the chance to hit the pitch with an elite team of the brand’s top players, including cover star Leo Messi. However, it cannot be used it in Ultimate Team mode.
Messi FUT Loan Player
This year, it is possible to unlock players on loan from the EA Sports Football Club Catalogue using football club credits. However, the loan of Lionel Messi for five matches is exclusive for players who buy the Ultimate Team edition.
Adidas® Predator Boot Bundle
One of the world’s top sports brands’ boots are available for free. It includes five pairs of boots from the Predator line.
Historic Kits from classic teams in football history can be instantly unlocked to be used in FIFA 15 and FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.
Three exclusive new celebrations pulled from real life: Kiss the Wrist, Stand Tall and Flag Kick.
Q: When do these other codes have to be redeemed ?
A: These additional codes have to be redeemed from EA Sports Football Club Catalogue before September 26th, 2015.
Q: How much more do I pay for the Ultimate Team Edition ?
A: It depends on the stores. Check your local store for prices or take a look to the stores and prices chapter, please.
Q: Do I need to buy the Ultimate Team edition in order to play this game mode ?
A: No. Ultimate Team mode is available in every editions.
Q: Which edition should I buy ?
A: The main difference between these two editions are the gold packs. The Ultimate Team Edition also brings another offers but, in our opinion, they are not worth it. Besides that, the official retail stores also offers one of these EASFC items in the Standard Edition.
If you usually do not play Ultimate Team, you should choose the standard edition and save some money. Many will say to you that you should choose the Ultimate Edition, but we have a different opinion. First of all, the standard edition brings 15 FUT 15 packs, which means that the difference between both editions is not 40 packs but only 25. We know that these gold packs are cheaper than if you buy them on the store but there is something you should not forget: you only get one gold pack per week, for 40 weeks. This is a huge disadvantage since you need those packs as soon as possible to build your dream team. The market depreciates over the time, so when you redeem your last pack you probably no longer need it. We also know that many gamers love to own a FIFA 15 cover and DVD with “Ultimate Edition” printed in, but the extra cost is too much money for it.
Current-Gen or Next-Gen Consoles
Q: What are the main differences between FIFA 15 for current-gen and FIFA 15 for next-gen consoles ?
A: There are two big differences: the game play and the price.
The EA Sports Ignite game engine is used for next-gen consoles and delivers a new level of innovation, further blurring the line between the real-world and the virtual: players think, move and behave like real athletes, with environments as dynamic and ever-changing as real-world stadiums.
FIFA 15 for next-gen consoles is usually five pounds more expensive.
Q: Which platforms use the Ignite game engine ?
A: Playstation 4, XBox One and PC. It will debut on Windows PC with FIFA 15.
Q: Which are the recommended specifications and minimum required specifications for PC users ?
Q: Which platform should I buy FIFA 15 for ?
A: FIFA 15 for next-gen consoles will be a better game but you should pay attention to the fact that if you are planning to buy a PS4 or XBox One only to play FIFA, it will probably cost you more than 450 pounds. It is not worth it. Buy the FIFA for the platform you have. Keep in mind that, between PC and next-gen consoles, our suggestion goes to PS4 and XBox because there are too man cheaters on PC.
Q: When will FIFA 15 be released ?
A: It will be released in the following dates (according to EA Sports):
- September 23, 2014 (Tuesday)
USA and Canada
September 25, 2014 (Thursday)
France, Spain, Italy, Poland, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Czech Republic, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Germany and Russia

A: Yes. Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation Portable, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, iOS, XBox One and Playstation 4 versions of FIFA 15 will be released in the same date.
Q: What can I do to get early access to FIFA 15 ?
A: You can subscribe to the ‘Season Ticket’ program – exclusively available to PS3 and XBox 360 – or buy the game in another console’s region (you will need a PSN / Gamertag account from North America, if possible).
Q: When will FIFA 15 be released for Season Ticket holders ?
A: The exact date depends of the season ticket holders’ region. It is 3 days before the release date. For example: in North America, FIFA 15 will be available in September 20th.
Q: If I have an active Season Ticket subscription but don’t buy the game, how long I will be able to play FIFA 15 by the early access ?
A: The early access only works until the FIFA 15 release date.
Q: What do I get by pre-ordering FIFA 15 ?
A: The 15 FUT Gold packs offer of the standard edition is exclusive for pre-orders.
Q: Until when I can pre-order FIFA 15 ?
A: Pre-orders are accepted until the day before the FIFA 15 release. The game is dispatched in the release day.
Q: Should I pre-order FIFA 15 ?
A: If you really plan to buy the game, you should pre-order it. You will get 15 FUT gold packs for free, which is better than nothing. However, if you don’t plan to play it all the time, buying it later on, especially at Christmas, may be cheaper as game prices can drop around this time.
Stores and Prices
Q: Where can I buy FIFA 15 ?
A: FIFA 15 is sold in thousands of stores all over the world. However, we suggest you to buy it from an official retail store because they usually have small incentives for you.
Q: How can I know which ones are the official retail stores ?
A: Gamers from UK may choose between Amazon, Game and Shopto. Gamers from USA may choose between Amazon, Gamestop, BestBuy and Target. PC version is also available for both through the Origin store.
Q: Where should I buy FIFA 15 for my console ?
A: If you live in UK or Republic of Ireland, you have two good options. Game has more offers but our suggestion is Amazon because it is cheaper and have an amazing customer service. You can check the prices in the following table.
If you live in USA, you should know that the stores are asking the same price for FIFA 15: $59,99 (Standard Edition) and $69,99 (Ultimate Team Edition). In North America, the FIFA 15 price is the same for current-gen and next-gen consoles. In our opinion, you should wait a few weeks more because this stores usually make special discounts.

Q: Is it possible to download FIFA 15 through my console ?
A: Sure. You just need to go to PSN store or XBox Marketplace and buy the game. After the payment you will be able to download it and play.
Q: Should I buy FIFA 15 directly from the console or from a retail store ?
A: Through the console you will not get all the offers, it is usually more expensive and you will have to download a huge file. A retail store is still our suggestion.
Q: Where should I buy FIFA 15 for my PC ?
A: Amazon is the right choice if you want to pre-order the disc version. However, if you prefer the download version, you may save a few pounds buying in Origin. It is easier, because you don’t have to wait by the download code that will be emailed to you near release date, and it is the only option available to get the Ultimate Team edition. If for any reason you bought the Standard edition and want those extra gold packs, you may be able to buy an Ultimate Edition upgrade at Origin (not announced yet).
